    With the temperatures dropping, it is crucial to upgrade your skincare routine. Our skin gets a lot more dry,  and flaky during the chilly season, leading to woes like dryness, dullness, and breakouts among others. While a lot of us turn to packed skincare goodies which usually backfire because most of them are loaded with harmful chemicals.  

    It is time that you swapped your chemical-packed skincare with natural ingredients that are fail-safe and effective. We spoke to Shahnaz Husain, beauty expert and Founder of The Shahnaz Husain Group, and asked her to share some simple winter face mask recipes for all skin types. 

    Winter Skin Care

    Husain shared that since winter is a dry season, our skin loses all its moisture and this leads to dryness, flaking, roughness and red skin. To prevent the loss of moisture with seasonal changes, it is essential to tweak your daily skincare routine. She further shared that hydrating face masks help hydrate, naturally moisturise, and nourish the skin. 

    Best Ingredients For Dry Skin

    The expert shared that natural ingredients like aloe vera, orange juice, honey, malai or milk cream, curd, almond oil, egg yolk are natural moisturisers and soften the skin.

    Aloe Vera Gel Face Pack For All Skin Types

    Lemon Face Pack

    If you have oily skin and enlarged pores, mix lemon juice, cold milk and two teaspoons of oats in a bowl. Apply it on areas you have big pores. Wash after 20 minutes. 

    Though all these face packs are natural and effective, we suggest you do a patch test on your hand before using them directly on your face to prevent any irritation or redness.
